“We made it!”
“Finally… we’re here…”
Camilla-chan and Sakura-chan stepped out of the private jet adorably with their hands outstretched, and Shirousagi stepped down with a frown on his face.
“Hey Shirousagi, are you weak with planes?”
It was only after we boarded the plane that Shirousagi started to feel groggy, so I asked him if that was the cause of the problem, but he shook his head.
“No, it’s nothing like that… Maybe it’s because I haven’t slept well in the past few days, and I think I got drunk.”
Shirousagi’s smile was not his usual bright and friendly one, but he answered with a smile nonetheless.
Even when he’s not feeling well, he still keeps smiling.
I honestly thought that Shirousagi was amazing.
No wonder he’s so popular with the girls.
And even though he’s a guy, Camilla-chan has taken a liking to him.
Even though he only styles his hair in a way that resembles cat ears, it’s cunning to be pined for by a girl with such cat ears.
Maybe it’s just my otaku nature, but I’ve taken a liking to Camilla-chan because of her cat ears.
She’s also good friends with Sakura-chan, and the two of them look really cute together.
That’s why I want to be friends with her, but Camilla-chan is very wary of me because she despises men.
…No, on the contrary, she probably hates me a lot because of the incident in Alice-san’s room the other day.
And yet, I thought it was cunning that Shirousagi was so fond of Camilla-chan.
I thought about it, so I said something to Shirousagi about it.
“It’s a good thing, though, isn’t it, Shirousagi? After all, Shirousagi is pining for Camilla-chan, that cute girl with cat ears.
“What did you just say?”
When I told him that I was jealous of him, Shirousagi, who was about to walk away, turned and looked at me with a smile.
There was something strange about his smile, and it seemed to be drawn out.
And I could even feel some pressure from Shirousagi.
I flinched a little at Shirousagi, but then he said the same thing.
“Ah, no, it’s nice to be pined for by Camilla-chan…”
“Hahaha, Kanzaki-kun, can I smack you?”
I was surprised to see Shirousagi with a blue streak on his forehead and a clenched fist in front of his face.
I’ve never seen Shirousagi like this before.
It seems I’ve stepped on another landmine without even knowing it.
“That was… Kai’s fault…”
Even Alice-san, who seemed to have been watching our exchange, criticized me.
Did I say something that could be blamed for…?
I’m not sure why I’m being accused of this, but I tilted my head and Alice-san sighed.
Then she turned to Shirousagi.
“Shirousagi kid… I’m sorry… but I’m leaving those two little ones to you…”
“You’re throwing me under the bus here!? Why are you being so merciless with me!?”
Suddenly, Shirousagi was left in charge of Camilla-chan and Sakura-chan, and he began to protest loudly about his displeasure of what was happening.
“What’s the problem…? Nekomimi-bomb is… so fond of you though…?”
“That’s rather the problem, isn’t it!?”
Taking advantage of the fact that Sakura-chan and Camilla-chan were too excited to listen to him, Shirousagi said that the problem was that Camilla-chan was pining for him.
What an extravagant thing to say…
I lamented the unreasonableness of the world to Shirousagi, who had the luxury of worrying about whether popular men worry about being popular…
“Hey Kanzaki-kun, I want to give back to you exactly what I feel from your gaze.”
I don’t know how Shirousagi took the look I gave him, but his fireball flew towards me.
It seems that Shirousagi’s mind is emotionally unstable due to the effects of being intoxicated from flying.
“There’s some things I can’t talk about… when those kids are around… so I’m leaving them to you…”
Before I could say anything back to Shirousagi, Alice-san said and patted Shirousagi on the shoulder.
“I think I’m going to cry…?”
“Nekomimi-bomb… Shirousagi kid is actually―”
“Wah! Waaaah! I understand! I’ll take care of them!”
When Alice-san was about to say something to Camilla-chan, Shirousagi hurriedly stopped Alice-san and immediately went to Camilla-chan and Sakura-chan.
Sakura-chan looked at me for a moment with a sad expression on her face, probably indicating that we were going our separate ways.
But she’s a good girl, so she doesn’t say anything selfish and walks with Shirousagi and the others.
“Shouldn’t I go with Sakura-chan and the others?”
Sakura-chan gave me a lonely look, and I couldn’t help but say something like that to Alice-san.
Then Alice-san smiled at me, and for some reason, took out her phone and started to operate it.
“…What are you doing?”
I couldn’t understand what she was doing, so I asked her, and she smiled and said the following.
“KAI is… an extreme siscon bastard who loves his sister so much… I’ve written that on the internet…”
“No, no, no, no! Wait a minute! If you do that, KAI’s stocks will go down!”
“But it’s true…”
“No, there are some things you can’t write, even if they’re true!”
“Facts are… undeniable…”
“…I can’t deny that…”
When I acknowledged my love for my sister, Alice-san gave a deep sigh.
What should I do, just for one day, my stock is going downhill…
However― the sighing Alice-san looked up at my face with a smile.
“But… I do like the way Kai… cares for her sister though…?”
Alice-san also cares about her sister Aria, so I guess she shares my opinion.
To be honest, it made me happy to hear someone I admire say that.
“Thank you very much.”
So I smiled and thanked her.
As I thanked her, Alice-san nodded her head and started to walk away.
But there was one more thing I was curious about, so I stopped Alice-san.
“Umm, you seem to be putting a lot of pressure on Shirousagi, why are you doing this to a guy who clearly has nothing to do with all of this…?”
When I inquired about it, Alice-san replied with a smile.
“I know I’m putting a lot of pressure on him right now, but Alice is going to guarantee his future. He is an essential part of Alice’s two most precious things.”
“Kuro is in this big hospital…?”
I couldn’t help muttering to myself when I saw the hospital where Kuro was staying, because it was so big.
According to what I heard from Alice, it was the biggest hospital in the world.
“We’re going in…”
Unlike me, who was surprised by the size of the hospital, Alice-san, who was not interested in the size of the hospital, went inside first.
I quickly followed her.
We went straight to Kuro’s hospital room.
Kuro’s real name is Ryuu Kuroyanagi.
I wondered what kind of person he is…
As I was finally going to meet Kuro, I felt both anticipation and anxiety swirl inside me, which made me nervous.
Then Alice-san took my right hand in hers.
“You don’t have… to be so nervous… It’ll be fine, okay…?”
Alice looked up at me and said softly with a smile.
Despite the fact that I was suddenly being held by a girl, instead of being upset, I was strangely relieved.
I really felt calm when I was with Alice-san for some reason.
Perhaps sensing from my expression that my tension was gone, Alice-san let go of my hand and started walking again.
We arrived in front of the room where Kuro was staying.
*Knock knock knock―.
When we arrived in front of Kuro’s hospital room, Alice-san knocked on the door.
In response to the knock, a young man’s voice came from inside.
I could tell from his voice that Kuro was a calm man.
It was a voice that gave me that impression.
“Oh, please come in.”
Following the man’s voice, Alice-san opened the door to the hospital room and walked in.
I followed her into the room.
“I’m glad… to see you’re doing well…”
When Alice-san saw Kuro, she let out a sigh of relief.
“Thanks to you, I’m fine as usual. This is thanks to the help of Alice-san and others.”
“You don’t wear… bandages anymore, do you…?”
“Yes, I just had it removed the other day.”
Kuro gave Alice-san a friendly smile.
The first impression I had of Kuro was that he seemed like a kind man.
He has a gentle face that suits the word “gentleman”.
I don’t know if his hair is short from the start or if it was cut for the head surgery, but he looks like an idol.
I bet he’s probably very popular with girls.
He is, as they say, the enemy of men.
After a short conversation with Alice-san, Kuro turned his gaze towards me.
“Well then― you’re Kaito Kanzaki, right?”
―This was my first encounter with a man who would later change my life forever.
